The town of Jupiter is a family-friendly community that is one of the fastest-growing cities in Palm Beach County, with a population of 60,802. Jupiter has become a hub for boating and water sports, dining on the water, major league baseball, and the iconic Jupiter lighthouse. All of these attractions have increased traffic and congestion along Indiantown Road and U.S. Highway 1. The increase in traffic leads to an increase in car accidents.


If your car accident occurred in Jupiter, then the responding police department to the scene of the accident will be either the Jupiter Police Department, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office or the Florida Highway Patrol.
